Dressmaking for Beginners (evening) Course

Term dates for 2021-22

About this course

This 10 week course is an informal way to develop creative skills, learning to think outside the box and create something new from something old. We will begin by selecting our materials (unloved garments, old curtains and textiles, broken jewellery) and planning a design around these items. We will then work to transform our materials into one-off items of clothing/accessories through pattern cutting, fabric manipulation, sewing and embellishment. Basic kit and equipment will be provided and guidance on additional kit required will be given by the tutor. Please bring your unloved garments to the first session with you.
